You should probably change your GPS data to hidden.

Really? Nobody looks at my AP or Strava so surely that won't matter? And even then you've really got to match it up with the map too. Really? You think?
Going onto to the map. I'm going to talk with you on Saturday before I go back there in the afternoon. Mostly someone who's a cartographer needs to go and see it. I'm seeing little discrepancies on contours and vegetation. Some erosion gullies are filled in and some have expanded a ton. I moved one control on the Green to an earth wall that's a burst dam. The gully marked (where the original control was) is now a dry pond bed.
Control 2 on the Orange is a concern. I want to make the area directly next to it out of bounds because of the MTB anthills next to it (the bike traffic could be a problem?). I don't want to move it because it's a great control.

I just looked. I does give a ton of info. Never knew that existed on here.

I am planning on doing a long run at Walnut Creek on my way back from Tahuaya. It'll be good to talk on Saturday to I have an idea of where I should run. Adjustments to the map are easy to make if one knows where to make them. The hardest thing is figuring out where the issues are.

Standard practice when setting or vetting the course you hide the track. You never know who will look at it because you can get an immense amount of information about it. It's one of the reasons why they have reduced the information for major events (WOC and such) while expanding embargoed areas. A few teams created an almost perfect WOC sprint map using street view among other things. One of the mental practice courses that was set was very similar to the actual course that was the WOC final. Coincidentally those individuals did very very well.

Very naughty. That's more than Team Sky's "marginal gains". See you Saturday.
